Outsourcing any book and especially an eBook is quite common. You might ask who are the people who outsource their books. They can be people who want to write down their research papers but do not have the time and writing skills and they can also be lecturers who want to make the lectures into an eBook for their students as well as people who are engaged in different professions and simply do not have the time to write a book and even businessmen who want to write business eBooks and much more.

This usually happens as the person who wants to write the book has a clear set of goals and ideas and they either do not have the time or the resources or the skills to write a full-fledged eBook and this is when they start looking for ghost-writers and content writers who are going to write the book for them. But before we begin there are a few critical steps of understanding that they must know.


If you are someone who is not writing your book but rather outsourcing it then your role changes slightly and you become more like a project manager who has to manage the process of their book being written. And like any project, they have to fulfil a few tasks necessary for the completion of the book. Let us see in the next point what are these tasks.


Before you even start the process of hiring any book writer to write your eBook, you must be clear yourself about the reason for writing this book. This book is maybe written if you want to shed light on the industry you are working in and thereby you also need a writer who is familiar with this industry. If you are doing this as a motivational book so that people might get uplifted then you must also choose a writer who understands motivational speech. If this book is purely academic and will serve as a guide for your students then you must also find a writer who has an academic background and knows how to write academic material. We are basically saying that you must find the writer that fits the bill and understands the scope and goal for your writing of this book. This makes it quite easy for them to write the book.


Explaining the scope of a book is of the essence when you are starting this endeavour with the writer you have hired. It is important that you explain to them what is the reason for you writing this book and also what are the tasks they have to do. This will also include your vision about the book which may include how long you want the book to be and how many chapters you want to be there and even the word limit and paragraph limit. You can also explain to the writer that you want graphic diagrams as well as any other requirements. This type is quite important as this step prevents any miscommunication and dissatisfaction after the work has been completed.


This is probably the most important stage of the process wherein you get to hand over all your research notes and clip notes and any other material that you want to include in the

book. This stage also contains the project plan in detail and everything that you want them to do in the book which may also include various illustrations as well as various sources of inspiration that led you to start this book. The more in-depth you are in this process the better your outcome will be and the better the writer’s final book will resemble your vision. This is also the point where you want to establish a good working relationship with the eBook writer as you would want to express as much as you want for your vision of the book.


There are a lot of places where you can outsource your book. Let us talk about a few of these options.


This is probably one of the most cost-effective and one of the most popular options out there. You can visit a few of the most popular freelancing websites wherein you can choose a writer of your liking based on their ratings and even their past work success rate. These writers are generally good at what they do and can produce satisfactory results.


If you are looking for professional work and by that we mean work that is certified to be of the best quality then you can visit dedicated ghost-writing websites where you will find the best writers who are professionals in what they do and have years of experience and you will be able to work with them seamlessly.


This is probably the trickiest part for you as the patron of this eBook. At this stage, you would like to have close supervision while the writer does the writing. This is where that healthy working relationship comes into play if you have a good working relationship already established with the writer then you can give them pointers as to which way the eBook should head. You can also give them materials while they do the work and assist them and also approve the outline that they provide you. And after all the supervision work and a few back and forths between you and the eBook writer, you can finalize the work.

This was a brief how-to guide for you to outsource your eBook. And if you are comfortable with outsourcing your eBook then you are also knowledgeable enough to understand that the best way to publish an eBook is through self-publishing where you get to decide where and how the book is published and promoted and this is where we come in. We are Orange Publishers; India’s premium self-publishing book house and we would love to assist you in publishing your eBook.


Ask someone who is into publishing about the lengths they have to go to ensure that the image they are using does not violate anyone’s copyright and they will tell you how staggering that is. Copyright is an issue that is there to protect creative content creators and copyrights can be issued to anything creative and that includes songs videos movies as well as the simple image.


If you are a writer and an author then this is probably bad news for you because let’s face it creating your images after you have written a book can seem like a lot of work. Creating illustrations or even hiring a professional illustrator for adding images to your published book can also seem like a lot of work.

The biggest mistake you as an author can do right now is pick up any odd image from Google and hope that this image is in circulation so the original right holders and owners of this image will not probably care but you would be mistaken.


Copyright laws are enacted to protect the use of various materials such as images and corporate laws are strictly enforced when someone who has not created the image or does not hold the rights to the image is using that image for commercial purposes. If you are trying to add that image to your book you would be doing that very thing. You may wonder that your book is now published and it’s going great and the sales are good and no one seems to have knocked on the door that you are in the clear but you should probably check your business email where there will be probably an email where a lawyer is asking you to take down the image and call back all the books in circulation with that image. The lawyer is asking on behalf of that company for an exorbitant fee for using their image without their permission.  Failing to do this can actually end you up at court where you are on the losing side because you do not have any proper reason to use the image and legally you are in the wrong.


The best way to go about this if you are a new author and you do not have a lot of capital and you’re simply starting out is to look for websites that offer images with the CC licence which is the creative commons licence.  We would not like to mention any websites because the websites change their policy from time to time but if you do a quick Google search you will always come across a website that offers images from hobbyists to everyone to use their images for any purpose and that also includes commercial purpose.  While some images make come with the additional task of you having to mention the actual author of the image as an acknowledgement in your book but overall creative commons licence images are good to use.  The only problem with this is that aunt a lot of them are around and because it’s free it is probably bring used by others.


You can always go and visit various stock image websites like Shutterstock etc and get a subscription. Any image you download from them while the subscription is active will also come with a licence to use that image and once you’ve obtained that image, you are free to use it as you like. Although we would still suggest you look up the TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
